Adrián Fernández (born 01/01/2004) participated in the Challenge 80 class in the Spanish Cup in 2015 and 2016, claiming 5 victories and becoming Spanish champion in his final year. His performance in this competition allowed him to move to the PreMoto3 category of the RFME Spanish Championship. He took this step forward with the Ajo Motorsport Academy, and in his debut season the Spaniard managed to finish 10th overall, with a total of 50 points. Sixth place in Race 2 at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit was his best result that year.
That same year he participated as a wildcard at several European Talent Cup rounds, achieving his best result of fourth place at Valencia in the season finale.
His progress and good results throughout 2017 allowed him to renew his relationship with the Ajo Academy for a further year and become a full-time rider in the European Talent Cup, considered the prelude to the Moto3 Junior World Championship.
